What was Lee Harvey Oswald really like?

Between 1959 and 1961, Marine Corps Pvt. Kerry W. Thornley wrote a novel about a fellow Marine who had defected to the USSR. Little did he know that his friend, Lee Harvey Oswald, would later be accused of assassinating President John F. Kennedy.

Through the fictional character Johnny Shellburn, "The Idle Warriors" gives rare insight into the mind of the man who allegedly committed the most infamous crime of the century.

"The Idle Warriors" is the story of a troop of Marines in the Far East - getting laid, pulling pranks, eating, drinking, and talking about life. It’s a story similar to any number of films and books from that time, both in style and content. But because the book was based on Oswald, it remains an eerie novelty, like the appearance of Fidel Castro as an extra in a Busby Berkeley film. Kerry’s introduction itself makes the book well worth reading.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas A book about Oswald written BEFORE the JFK assasination! 3 de mayo de 2000

Formato: Tapa blanda
Kerry Thornley was stationed in Japan with Lee Harvey Oswald at one of only two US bases where LSD experiments took place. It's Thornley's contention that the purpose of these experiments was to create "Manchurian Candidates" - assassins on autopilot. This could be dismissed as a paranoid rant, but this book was written before Nov. 22, 1963. Hmmm, maybe that's why it's no longer in print. If you do manage to get your hands on a copy, count yourself among the lucky.

Not sure what to make of this book. This story is suppose to be about Lee Harvey Oswald as told through fictional character, Johnny Shellburn.The book shocks you in the preface when the author reveals the fact that E. Howard Hunt was stationed at Atsugi Air base the same time Oswald was there. The JFK assassination research community can nicely connect the dots of intelligence to Oswald to the legendary CIA operative Hunt.The body of the book follows the adventures of Shellburn and his fellow servicemen through their loves and losses. Their dealings with their superiors and a little combat. The reader will find Shellburn (Oswald) to be articulate, thoughtful and determined young man with somewhat of a gentle soul.In the end we find that Oswald has defected to Russia. His servicemen buddies are left to wonder why through a series of interviews. Was Shellburn (Oswald) an atheist, was he a communist. Why did he defect? Was it US foreign policy as speculated by some? Was he a traitor? What to make of the book? Either Shellburn (Oswald) chronicled pre-assassination Oswald because he was interesting or was he written about because it was a way to establish a profile for an intelligence asset who would later be framed for one of the biggest crimes of the century?
